The GSA Administrator is required to collect and report agency travel data for Premium Class Travel, Senior Federal Traveler and Governmentwide Travel Reporting Information.
GSA developed guidelines detailing the authorities to collect data from agencies, which assures compliance. GSA requires agencies to submit the data into a Web based tool (https://www.travel.reporting.gov/TRAVEL/TRAVELLogin). Please click on the following links to access the reporting tool and guidelines for each set of data.
Premium Class Travel Report (PCTR)
The Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), Part 300-70 Agency Reporting Requirements establishes the requirement that federal agencies report the use of any other than coach-class transportation accommodations by their federal employees while on official business. The data is reported to GSA annually.
Senior Federal Traveler Report (SFTR)
The SFTR data is collected to provide information on agencies’ use of Government aircraft by senior executives. The authority to collect this data comes from the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Circular A-126, “Improving the Management and Use of Government Aircraft” and is implemented through the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR). Regulations regarding travel on government aircraft are located at 41 CFR 300-3; 301-10.260/266; 301-70.800/808, and 301-70.900/910.
